This is what happened on April 15th when Melissa “Ms Cupcake” Morgan and I went live on  Resonance 104.4FM  during the #VeganHour Twitter chat. Our conversation ran from accidentally vegan  Beef and Tomato Flavour Pot Noodles  to running vegan businesses. Vegan registered dietitian Marty Davey even phoned in to answer questions that had come up on Twitter.

What can scientists say about it? And how do vegan activists react to the charge? Dr Julia Minson explains the science. Marla Rose explains exactly how Bacon Loving Hipsters Can Kiss Her Vegan Ass. And Colleen Patrick-Goudreau discusses the psychology and experience of "judgemental vegans".

How do they make vegan cheese that stretches and melts? Why is cheese such a challenge for new vegans? Can Ian convince anyone who makes cheese to share their secrets? What's the past, present, and future of vegan cheese. And if you brought together the leading vegan cheeses from Europe and the Americas - products that - like Redwoods Cheezly or Vegusto in Europe and Daiya in the Americas - aren't even sold in the same country, who would win?

A future with cheap lab meat could be drastically different - for humans and animals. How would it work? And is the development of this technology good for animals? Ian talks to Nicholas Genovese, a PETA-funded scientist working on the stem cells that could make up what he calls cultured meat. Diana ask two vegans, transhuman philosopher David Pearce and activist Jordi Casamitjana, why they are for or against in vitro meat; and I reveal the results of my survey. Will vegans and meat eaters ever...
